My kindergarten students are full of energy, and they are eager to begin their first learning experiences in our structured learning environment. Each student enters kindergarten at different levels of ability, but all students are inquisitive in their unique way and excited to learn.
The students attending our title 1 school, come from culturally diverse backgrounds which can be contributed to a blend of living in a rural community as well as living just outside a large military base.
The vast demographic range of my students keeps things exciting and challenging. I strive to meet the individual needs of all students.
Teaching during a pandemic has proven to pose a far great challenge than just ensuring all students are achieving at their greatest academic potential. Of course this is our ultimate objective but with the Covid virus we now must ensure our learning environment is as safe and germ free as possible.
Clorox Disinfecting wipes are so handy to wipe down solid surfaces in the classroom.
After working with a group of kids I always wipe down the tables and manipulatives before working with another group. This is done in effort to minimize cross contamination from any student whom by unknowingly have the virus.
Essential items such as water fountains are currently off limits at our school. Although students are encouraged to bring a personal water bottle to class each day not all students have this luxury considering most of our students come from low economic homes. The water bottles are a great way for me to ensure all students stay hydrated during the day and have access to clean safe water to drink.
Lastly, I added Expo Markers to our list of needs. Expo Markers are something both my students and I use on a daily bases. We are at the point in our school year that some of our basic supplies need to be replenished and Expo Markers are on top of our list.
